Great tips! Just read about Serrapeptase and it says that it can treat Sinusitis, what can you say about this?

You can leave out the teaspoon of salt. Water vapor from boiled salt water will not contain salt; it stays behind in the water. That's how saltwater is desalinated. But, the freshwater vapor still feels good.

Great help! If sinusitis is left untreated it may become chronic, with permanent changes to the lining of the sinus. If this occurs surgical treatment may be required to drain the sinuses or to remove polyps. Visit newshealthtoday for more facts about sinusitis.
